Energy Action has one of the most comprehensive and well respected ESD teams in Australia. With two members of the NABERS Independent Efficiency Design Review Panel and a large pool of the best trained NABERS assessors and Green Star Accredited Professionals in the country, Energy Action has the capability to deliver on complex project requirements.
Our capabilities include best practice energy audits and retro commissioning advice for existing buildings, expert design review, energy-use simulation, post-construction evaluation and post-occupancy surveys for new buildings and civil, structural and mechanical engineering design and project management services.
Our design reviews aim to ensure your building energy performance is at the best possible level by helping you to avoid costly mistakes before you make them. We offer design reviews at all stages from concept to detailed design, this will identify not only opportunities for improvement, but also help you avoid pitfalls in implementation.
We will assess the accuracy of your simulation, refine the design of major plant systems, define controls and commissioning criteria, recommend the best technology opportunities and ensure your building complies with the relevant building code.
While accurate simulation is vital to estimate the energy consumption of various design scenarios, it is important to interpret the results with an understanding of how they might be affected by real world variables. We are experienced users of simulation packages such as DOE2, Tas and IES and have a detailed understanding of their capabilities and limitations. As a result our modelled simulations are tuned to reflect the real world, not just theory.
Green Star is a comprehensive, national and voluntary environmental rating system. It evaluates the environmental design and construction of buildings and communities. For building owners seeking to achieve Green Star ratings, we can:
- Review current Green Star rating potential and eligibility;
- Assess Green Star credit strategy for upgrade;
- Project manage Green Star application process and report development;
- Develop and peer review credit submission reports for a variety of credits;
- Assess and cross-check credits;
- Submit and lodge the Green Star application.
